Movie Info

Set in 1783, this romance chronicles the doomed relationship between a prince regent and a Catholic widow. The prince falls for her first, but as there is a great gulf in social class, she laughs at his advances. The poor prince is so distraught he attempts suicide. The widow then feels compassion and secretly marries him. Unfortunately, their secret becomes grist for the rumor mill and when it threatens the relationship between the prince and the king, the prince denies his marriage. The jilted woman runs away, and the prince marries the woman to whom he was originally betrothed.

Critic Reviews for Mrs. Fitzherbert

All Critics (2)

The handsome costumes are more flowing than some of the acting, although Leslie Banks is suitably bullish as Whig politician Charles James Fox and Wanda Rotha cameos impactfully as Caroline of Brunswick.

Miss Joyce Howard as Mrs. Fitzherbert is entirely charming even if her reading of the part lacks depth... but on the whole this film forfeits our admiration by being a little boring, a little long, a little wrong and somehow strangely inhuman.
